Nature is our best teacher for sustainable living.  Ecosystems like a forest don't need fertilizers trucked in, they don't just plant a single crop, nor do they produce waste or pollution.  By mimicking nature, we can create sustainable human habitats that are good for other species, too.  That is the aim of permaculture design. 

In this workshop, we will explore the basics of permaculture, including its three ethics:  care of the earth, care of people, and return of the surplus.  We will also look to several design principles to guide our thinking in planning out gardens based on the various roles that each part plays. 

The TreeUtah EcoGarden offers a chance to see many of these permaculture ideas in action.  For those of you who haven't ever visited the EcoGarden, it's a true gem in the city, filled with fruit trees, native plants, beautiful flowers, and a great vibe. 

The workshop will include fun and practical hands-on activities to exercise our observational skills.  Shaun will introduce you to tools and approaches that you can use in your own homes and gardens as another step toward a sustainable community. Workshop attendees will also be provided with take-home materials and a list of resources for further reading and exploration.
